LAW 1. LEGAL ETHICS
Second Semester AY 2014-2015
How can a lawyer take a case which he does not believe in?”
The classical answer to the question is the familiar dialogue ―
Boswell: But what do you think of supporting a cause which you know to be bad?
Johnson: Sir, you do not know it to be good or bad till the judge determines it.
